Stephen Fogarty: U.S. Army Must Converge Intell Resources, Cyber Operations

Maj. Gen. Stephen Fogarty

Maj. Gen. Stephen Fogarty, commander of the U.S. Army‘s Cyber Center of Excellence, has outlined his organization’s strategy to integrate its new cyber corps’ functions into the signal, intelligence and electronic warfare corps, Federal News Radio reported Friday.

Jared Serbu writes the Army’s newly created cyber center at Fort Gordon, Georgia works to further the service’s cyber modernization activities.

Fogarty told a conference that the Army needs to consolidate its intelligence resources into cyber operations in order to achieve what the service calls “information dominance,” according to the report.

“What we’re going to have to do is make sure that at the end of this, we don’t have three very exquisite and expensive stovepipes that really don’t support the commander’s requirements,” Fogarty told an industry audience.

“We’re going to converge some things, we’re going to change some things both on the intel side and on the signal side,” he said, adding that the Army intends to “formalize cyber, and we’re going to employ it on behalf of the nation.”

He also said the Army will remain dependent on the intelligence and signal communities to fill its cyber force while waiting for a few hundreds of dedicated cyber personnel, the station reports.
